The Spray Free Town initiative was our main focus. Huge progress has been made on this. We have been guaranteed the support of Cork City Council going forward.
2022 will be the year Ballincollig will finally be completely spray free.


The most important Project we undertook was moving ahead to make Ballincollig a Spray Free Town. A public meeting was held in early March where we outlined plans on how we wished to move forward with this project. 
Unfortunately, the pandemic put everything on hold as the country went into lockdown and everyone was stepped down. 
Project 2 – Work started on the footpaths leading to the Powdermills. Overhanging hedges were cut back and the footpaths cleaned.
Project 3 – The footpath stretching from the old Gaelscoil Ui Riordain to the Regional Park pedestrian entrance was cleaned.
Project 4 – John Buckley pruned the Hydrangeas at Poulavone. He also sorted out the Transition Stone Bed in Fr Sexton Park.

Project 5 – An area at Poulavone that runs along the length of road opposite the Hydrangeas was cut back to tidy it up and to allow for a two phase planting.
Planting is part of the Ballincollig Pollinator Corridor. Two phases – phase 1 planting the seeds and phase 2 hopefully there will be a lovely wildflower show in the coming year.
